Coffee, tea or pot roast: widower father enters the dating scene
4 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Herschel Bernardi is an accountant and recent widower with two sons who is confused by many things: the difference between hiring a maid and an afternoon escort, how to feed his family without going out to eat every night and...New Math. Brash, occasionally funny TV-movie, directed by Jerry Paris and co-produced by Paris and Aaron Spelling, spotlights some amusing ladies, mostly from TV (Shirley Jones, Nanette Fabray, June Lockhart, Tina Louise, and Penny Marshall in a bit). Colorful and harmless, a cartoony sketch of modern-day dating in place of a satirical study on the subject. The gummy photography and thick-as-a-brick background scoring are both irritating, and there's too much of mush-mouthed Brandon Cruz as Bernardi's youngest child; otherwise, a lightly charming piece of harmless fluff.
